Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) - Student Chapter

ACM meets weekly to practice for the ACM-International Collegiate Programming Competition, held every fall. Students tackle programming problems from a variety of sources, including past competitions and through HackerRank and LeetCode. These problems are great preparation for technical interviews. Past members have gone on to work at top companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Google.

The Association for Computing Machinery Women’s chapter supports the full engagement of women in all aspects of the computing field.
